Closing Session Keynote: Dr. Sean Bailey
Nov. 20th at 11:10am
Dealing with the public can be a challenge even in good times.  Join your peers and Dr Bailey as we experience his session on "Conflict Resolution: A Masterclass on the Conflict Resolution Process to Handle Any Size Dispute".  Team members may differ on what the problem is; or, they may agree on what the problem is but have a different perspective about it; or, they may share the same perspective but have different ideas on how to solve the problem. Our ability to resolve conflict centers on 1) self-management, 2) communication, and 3) open-mindedness.
